Along for the Ride - part 3

It's month 3 for my Titus2 group!  We met a couple weeks ago and went over month 2's topic of prayer.  It was such a rich discussion and while they all thought the book was a hard read (Teach us to Pray by Andrew Murray), they all seemed to get so much from it.  This was a great reminder to me that part of my job as a mentor is to gently push them and challenge them.  My natural tendency is to make everyone happy, keeping people comfortable and being courteous to their preferences.  But that doesn't always take top priority in mentoring.  If I want them to grow, I need to be willing to get a little outside my comfort zone to push them a little outside of theirs.  It's how they grow, and it's how I grow as well.  Easy doesn't often bring about change, although I kinda wish it did! 😉

The girls in my group are each navigating through a new season of life.  One of them is a newlywed, another just graduated from graduate school and is looking for a job, and the other is in a season of trusting God through recent heartache and a shattered dream.  Yet they are each growing from walking through Titus2 together - learning each month on their own, but also from each other.  Even though we are all different and in different stages, I love how God knit us together as a group and continues to weave our threads together more and more as the year progresses.

So regarding our group time - scripture verses were memorized and recited (so proud of them!), takeaway papers read, challenges and/or questions about prayer discussed, prayer journaling examples given, peer challenge and marriage exercise hit on briefly, and time was spent in prayer for one another.  It was another sweet time together that went by way too fast!

Next month we are focusing on Identity in Christ.  This was the topic/month that God showed up big for me when I was a Titus2 mentee, so I'm excited to see what God has in store for our group.  We are reading "Classic Christianity" by Bob George - a book I think everyone needs to read!

My prayer this month is that my girls would have a secured identity in Christ.  That everything they do, they say, and they think will be out of the filter of who Christ says they are, not anyone or anything else.  That their confidence would be unshaken and their identity secured in Him for all their days.

Thanks for riding along with me on the Titus2 journey.  And as always, I'd love to hear about your group and what God is doing in the lives of your girls!

 

For His glory and the next generation,
